For doubling the income of the farmers, the central as well as the state governments are focusing on the possible alternatives. The various aspects such as crop diversification, crop intensification and cropping pattern can enhance the income of the farmers. Under crop intensification, the front line demonstrations on summer green gram were conducted at farmers’ field in Bathinda district to increase the income of the farmers and the productivity during the years 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19. The data was recorded under both the front line demonstrations as well as under farmer practices and compared with each other. The data was pooled for three years and it was observed on an average yield of the crop. The average grain yield in the tune of 10.94 q/ha was observed under demonstrations as compared to farmer practices (9.96 q/ha). The extension gap, technology gap and technology index were calculated for three years were 0.98 q/ha, 0.39 q/ha and 3.44 % respectively. The average higher net returns Rs. 37577/- and highest benefit: cost ratio 1.26 was observed. The average increase in net returns (15.7%) was highest under front line demonstrations over farmer practices.
